Your OPALGA Board at Work
Members of OPALGA,
At the Annual Meeting in January we invited each of you to give us input on two questions:
• How can we (OPALGA) change to be even more inclusive and relevant to all who fall under the large umbrella of queer?
• How do you envision OPALGA reaching out further to fulfill our mission statement? - promote positive attitudes toward and advocate for full equality for the LGBTQ community; welcome all area LGBTQ residents and friends; share resources and information pertinent to the LGBTQ community; and celebrate our community and give back to it through volunteer events.
We received more than 20 written replies to those questions, replies that were prepared around tables at the Annual Meeting. At a Board Retreat held February 17th we spent time considering each item of input and came up with 25 actionable items that we are now in the process of prioritizing. When we have determined which of these actions will be tackled this year we will let you all know and we will report to you on a regular basis how we are progressing.
A second major action at our retreat was to take the Committee Sign-Up sheets we received at the Annual Meeting, and by email following the meeting – a total of 44 responses – and to create committees to address pulling off a wonderful Gala in October; Donut Day in June; our ongoing Scholarship awards; Social Activities; Education; Volunteer/Outreach; and Website support. If you were one of the 44 you will be hearing from the board liaison for each committee about your involvement. Each committee will create a ‘charter’ outlining their planned action, set up a schedule for meeting and reporting activity, determine a budget if needed, and select one or two members to be chair or co-chair of the committee.
As OPALGA celebrates an illustrious 30-year history all through 2019 we want you to feel a part of how we move forward through a future that holds promise and challenges.
